No Conspiracy

I remember a year ago, I found a chart. It had the names of the next 20 virus strain names of the Covid.

That image I need to find it, I think it got deleted on Twitter.

It won’t get deleted on here, when I find it that is…

I just saw that Trump was boo’ed for saying he got the booster. Wow.

How Omicron, the New Covid-19 Variant, Got Its Name

The Covid-19 variant that emerged in South Africa was named after the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet.

The naming system, announced by the World Health Organization in May, makes public communication about variants easier and less confusing, the agency and experts said.

For example, the variant that emerged in India is not popularly known as B.1.617.2. Rather, it is known as Delta, the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet.

There are now seven “variants of interest” or “variants of concern” and they each have a Greek letter, according to a W.H.O. tracking page.

Some other variants with Greek letters do not reach those classification levels, and the W.H.O. also skipped two letters just before Omicron — “Nu” and “Xi” — leading to speculation about whether “Xi” was avoided in deference to the Chinese president, Xi Jinping.

“‘Nu’ is too easily confounded with ‘new,’” Tarik Jasarevic, a W.H.O. spokesman, said on Saturday. “And ‘Xi’ was not used because it is a common last name.”

He added that the agency’s best practices for naming diseases suggest avoiding “causing offense to any cultural, social, national, regional, professional or ethnic groups.”

I was reading some comments

“Never in my life have I seen such hysteria from the “educated” community.

If someone would have hypothesized this scenario to me, two years ago: only one unvetted, experimental shot, would be the impetus for the reestablishment of segregation, unconstitutional treatment of patients, broken families, illegal immigration, depopulation, massive unemployment, social divide, fake medical claims, etc.. I would have said the American public is just too smart to fall for this propaganda, BUT, here I am today, no extended family left to talk to, children pulled out of school, planes flying over head literally every minute (most likely carrying immigrants), medical community ignoring hippocratic oaths/common sense and killing patients in hospitals, racial and medical segregation is acceptable, and EVERY country is in on it—-“
